High and Ultra High Pressure Water Jetting

Intech Environmental Limited are specialists in High / Ultra High Pressure Water Jetting. As a member of the Water Jetting Association, all of our operators are highly trained and experienced in accordance with the WJA.

Our reputation of delivering on time, within budget in a safe and sustainable way makes us a UK market leader in this discipline, and enables our clients to keep their process plants, extractions systems and drainage lines clear.

High Pressure Water Jetting is ideally suited to general deposit cleaning and removing coatings and surface preparation. When preparing surfaces for inspection or new coatings, water jetting offers many advantages over traditional shot and grit blasting (such as no secondary damage, contamination or profiling), and is safer, quicker, cleaner and more versatile.

Our highly skilled and experienced jetting crews are working with pressure ranging from 200 psi to 18000 psi. Our large fleet of pumps can clean most contaminants with particular emphasis on heavy industry such as:

• Boilers
• Steam drums
• Storage tanks
• Anaerobic digester plants

For more intense jetting requirements we can also provide Ultra High Pressure Water Jetting. This has proved successful where refractory removal has been required.

High Pressure Water Jetting is a high risk activity and as such Intech Environmental has developed a single operation jetting system, which requires non-direct lancing from the operative, and has been used successfully in the following environments:

• Heat exchangers
• Steam drums
• Mud rums
• Economiser banks (tube and fin elements are particularly well cleaned without the risk of damage from high pressures)

Benefits to our clients include:

• Rail length is easily customisable to match the size of job
• Installed on its own modular frame to suit size and dimensions
• Adaptable to clean various types of boilers
• Lightweight, modular design for single operator use
• Slot and rail, direct drive technology
• Independent control of forward and reverse feed rate, enable operator to set dwell time for optimal cleaning

High Pressure Water Jetting in Confined Spaces

Whilst we aim to clean without the need for confined space entry, where man-entry into confined space is required, safety is always our main priority. Our skilled operators use the latest protective equipment, receive ongoing training and undertake regular medical checks.

Tube Cleaning

At Intech Environmental Limited we are experienced enough to understand that tubes are entirely different from pipe cleaning. Tubes are smaller and tightly clustered together to form bundles or banks. We use a range of high pressure pumps combined with specialist jets to unclog tubes to keep the production and heat transfer efficient. The requirement to clean can occur through deposits being laid in water treatment process and corrosion in areas such as:

• Heat exchanger
• Fin – fans
• Economiser tube banks
• Header pipes

 

We provide highly comprehensive method statements and risk assessments for each project.

During our outage Intech have carried out an incredible amount of work as directed and under the watchful eye of your Lead Supervisor Andy Woodward. I just wanted to let you know that the entire team that you sent are a credit to your company. They have worked incredibly hard and maintained complete professionalism throughout what has been a challenging time. At no point did they complain or moan about anything even when the situation and the conditions were not ideal (Mark almost evaporating in the extreme whilst doing the walking floor and feed screw springs to mind!!). All of the work was completed to a very high standard which is evident in the pictures. I would be grateful if you could pass on our thanks to all the team and we look forward to working with you again in the future.

Being a recently commissioned waste to energy plant we relied on your technical advice and experiences to guide as to the best solutions to some of our industrial cleaning requirements. Intech offered an excellent service and I was impressed with the professionalism of the team on site throughout the duration of the work. Our operations team conducted regular working party monitoring of all contractors on site during the outage, and feedback on the Intech team was positive and it was reported they worked safely and complied with safe systems of work and our site safety rules at all times. Please pass on my thanks to the team and I look forward to working together on future projects.
